Clueless "poet" cleverly omits key facts to make dopey Gaza-Ferguson point

Naomi Shihab Nye in today's News Journal, like way too many other anti-Israel zealots, omits tons of key facts regarding the current plight of Palestinians/Gazans.

Oppression makes people do desperate things. I am frankly surprised the entire Palestinian population hasnít gone crazy. If the U.S. canít see that Palestinians have been mightily oppressed since 1948, they really are not interested in looking, are they?

*Sigh* If I've documented once, I've documented it a million times. You have only your Arab neighbors to blame for any oppression you suffer, Ms. Nye. If "the entire Palestinian population hasnít gone crazy," it sure isn't because of lack of effort by the likes of Egypt, Jordan, Syria, et. al.

For they gobbled up the land allocated for the Palestinians in 1948, and then they, along with the Palestinians, attacked the nascent Israel. They lost. And they kept losing every other time they tried.

You casually mention the Six Day War without reference or context. This is not, sadly, surprising in the least.

It's really just boring already, Ms. Nye. Sympathy and needed change begin with taking responsibility. Try taking a page from the late Anwar Sadat and see if things don't begin to look different.

An article very similar to this one appeared in the Star Tribune today. Might've been the same idiotic article.

Ugh. She's probably making the rounds.

Confirmed: it was her idiotic article. A couple of people wrote in today about it and named her. One debunked her nonsense pretty well. There was also a moonbat from "Middle East Peace Now" who cheered on and called on the U.S. to end Israeli "oppression" of the Hamas, completely ignoring that Hamas' charter calls for the destruction of Israel and they lob rockets into Israel regularly.

My fiancť actually likes her as a poet. Until she read this!
